Hello Middles School and High School NCS Parents/Guardians,

 

Through supporting students this year, the Student Services/Counseling Center has found that anxiety is a topic that many of our students experience. This is a common experience for many in our community in 2018. To address this need and to raise awareness about the topic, we have set this as the topic for our January Parent University. We are extending to our students two opportunities to see the film the week after the Parent University viewing.

 

“Angst” discusses from a student, professional, and parent perspective the growing issue of stress, anxiety, and depression in teenagers across the country, what it looks like, and what is being done to address it.  A link to a preview for the film..

 

We are excited to announce that we will be holding an optional screening for our middle school and high school students the documentary “Angst”, two different days the week of January 29, 2018. Each screening will be followed by a 30 minute debrief and discussion session led by our counseling team.

  • Screening 1- Monday, January 29, 2018 at 2pm

    • PFAA students with no 7th period, VLA Students, PACT Students

  • Screening 2- Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 8am

    • Leading Edge, PFAA students with no 8th period

Our goal for of showing this film to Middle School and High School students is:

  1. Increase awareness of anxiety

  2. Give students resources for when they themselves feel anxiety

  3. Assist students in the development of healthy coping skills

 

While this is an optional viewing, we do encourage students to attend. Parents wishing to screen the film first can do so at the Parent University: Student Anxiety being held on Saturday, January 27, 2018 at 8:30 AM.
